Allport’s Scale is a measure of the manifestation of prejudice in a society. It is also referred to as Allport’s Scale of Prejudice and Discrimination or Allport’s Scale of Prejudice. It was devised by psychologist Gordon Allport in The Nature of Prejudice (1954).

The scale

Allport’s Scale of Prejudice goes from 1 – 5.

Scale 1, Antilocution Antilocution means a majority group freely make jokes about a minority group. Speech is in terms of negative stereotypes and negative images. This is also called hate speech. It is commonly seen as harmless by the majority. Antilocution itself may not be harmful, but it sets the stage for more severe outlets for prejudice.

Scale 2 Avoidance People in a minority group are actively avoided by members of the majority group. No direct harm may be intended, but harm is done through isolation.

Scale 3 Discrimination Minority group is discriminated against by denying them opportunities and services and so putting prejudice into action. Behaviours have the specific goal of harming the minority group by preventing them from achieving goals, getting education or jobs, etc. The majority group is actively trying to harm the minority.

Scale 4 Physical Attack The majority group, vandalise minority group things, they burn property and carry out violent attacks on individuals or groups. Physical harm is done to members of the minority group. Examples are lynchings of blacks, pogroms against Jews in Europe, tarring and feathering Mormons in 1800s and British Loyalists in the 1700s.

Scale 5 Extermination The majority group seeks extermination of the minority group. They attempt to liquidate the entire group of people (e.g., Indian Wars to remove Native Americans, Final Solution of Jewish Problem, and Ethnic cleansing in Armenia.).

Så vidt jeg kan se, scorer de slemme slemme fremmedfjendske danskere højst et (1) point mod mindretallene. Omvendt kan man sige, at visse mindretals opførsel her i landet scorer op til et 3-tal. Begivenhederne i Frankrig giver de unge i forstæderne et flot 4-tal.

UK: Slørsagen – Engelsk topløs model prøver at gå med slør

Muslim teaching assistant Aishah Azmi won £1,100 for hurt feelings after she was suspended for refusing to remove her veil in class. She said: “I would just like people to understand that the veil doesn’t act as a barrier.”

KEELEY HAZELL – UK’s favorit side 3 pige prøver at gå med niqab (ansigtsslør), hijab (tørklæde) and jilbab (kropsdragt):Her er hendes reaktioner:

It’s not fair to expect children to understand why their helper wants to hide her face from them. I immediately feel claustrophobic as the veil covers my nose and mouth — I can hardly breathe. When I do take a breath the material is sucked into my mouth and nostrils and I feel as if I am forced to breathe in stale air.

Driving is a nightmare. It takes a few minutes before I set off to make sure my movements are not restricted by the shapeless, black clothes — but still I feel my vision is restricted and my hearing is dangerously impaired.

I can’t even drive with a baseball cap on, let alone all this.The thought of trying to navigate the car without all my senses about me is pretty scary. As a result I find I drive a lot slower than usual and daren’t put the radio on. I’m glad I don’t have to go far because I’m sure I would crash.

People in the supermarket seem to be too focused on filling their baskets to even notice me but the dress itself is causing me problems.

Every time I bend down to pick something up or reach up to a high shelf, my niqab slips and I have to put down whatever I’m trying to buy and rearrange my clothes.At this rate it would take an age to do a weekly shop when all I ever want to do is get in and out as quickly as possible.

I decide to abandon the shopping and head off for lunch. Already I feel excluded from the rest of society as I am hiding away from everyone else. As a man moves out of the way to let me pass I smile in thanks — but afterwards I realise he wouldn’t have seen my expression and probably assumed I was being impolite.

McDonald’s is nearby so I pop in hoping a milkshake will fill me up. As soon as I sit down I realise I can’t drink in public and remain covered.

Leaving the tasty food behind is torture but I have no choice and I soldier on without so much as a glass of water — aside from the inconvenience I don’t think it’s healthy to be this thirsty.

I eventually visit a coffee shop — but have a similar problem. I’m unable to drink without lifting my head gear.

I feel like an outcast whose feelings just don’t matter as people make no attempt to hide their disapproving stares.

Overall, I think it would be a terrible way to live.

I can’t communicate properly with anyone around me and avoid talking to anyone because I feel as if I am being rude.

I’m normally quite a chatty person but as my facial expressions are hidden

I can’t respond to what people are saying to me or demonstrate any sort of emotion.

Nej det er tydeligt, at dragten ikke virker som en barriere. Kære Keeley du skal bare gå med den 3-4 år, så kommer det af sig selv.

Hvis det er så farligt for muslimske mænd at se på utildækkede kvinder – ja hvorfor går de så ikke med bind for øjnene – det var da nemmere for alle parter.

Tina Magaard i dagens Indblik i Jyllands-Posten: Dhimmificeringen af Danmark tiltager

Tina Magaard mener, at statsminister Anders Fogh Rasmussens hurtige afstandtagen fra DFU’s muhammed-tegninger og PET’s samarbejde med imamerne er et tegn på den tiltagende dhimmificering. Hun mener envidere, at PET’s samarbejde med imamerne vil accelerere udviklingen yderligere, idet imamernenes tankegang langsomt vil sive ind i PET.

Jørgen Bæk Simonsen får et afsnit for sig selv, og det er jo efter min mening helt fortjent.

Hvad betyder dhimmi?

Louvre og Sorbonne i Emiraterne

Frankrig er ved ved at flytte arvegodset ud af landet. Måske er det fordi de har forudset de kommende intifadaer.

Frankrig har indgået aftaler med Emiraterne om at opbygge et museumskompleks i nærheden af Abu Dhabi. Det drejer sig om et kompleks af 5 museer – blandt andet et med Louvre-betegnelsen, planerne indbefatter udstillinger af dele af Louvres samlinger for længere perioder og bemanding med franske eksperter og konservatorer. Der skal også overflyttes dele af Louvres samlinger til Atlanta USA.

Flere kritikere af projektet, der støttes aktivt af Chirac, er blevet fyret. Emiraterne betaler Frankrig 750 millioner Euro for at få projektet op at stå.

Desuden er Sorbonne-Universitetet igang med at oprette et universitet i Emiraterne, med franske undervisere og Sorbonne eksamensbeviser.

News Sniffer

News Sniffer Projektet er en ny måde at opdage mediernes bias på.

Primært indrettet på at monitorere BBC NEWS og BBC diskussions fora men også med en smule fra The Guardian og The Independent, men de opfordrer til at indsende forslag.

Det hele virker på den måde at programmerne registrerer når nyheder eller diskussionsindlæg ændrer sig. De forskellige versioner vises og forskellene highlightes. Dette kan selvfølgelig være  temmelig afslørende, når censur mm forekommer, men angående nyheder kan det jo også bare være et tegn på, at redaktionerne får flere oplysninger. 

Det findes her.

Kan vi få sådan et program til at se på de danske medier? Principielt må programmet være ligeglad med, hvilket sprog det monitorerer?
